Enjoy this live performance of "There Will Never Be Another You" at the end of this career and yet always holding court.

There Will Never Be Another You/Scat Lesson (Live) - Sammy Davis Jr. & Johnny Carson

We celebrate the "greatest entertainer ever to grace a stage" on what would be the late Sammy Davis Jr.'s 95th birthday. Harry Warren and Mack Gordon's 1942 song from the film, Iceland, was given a new vibe with Sammy's incredibly suave scat performance on the legendary Johnny Carson Show--there's no doubt, that "There Will Never Be Another You" Sammy!

In honor of what would have been Johnny Carson's 95th Birthday here is a rare live version of Sammy singing "There Will Never Be Another You." At the end of ...

Natalie Cole - Coffee Time

Whether you enjoy a double latte, Black-and-Sweet, iced or Extra-Light, on National Coffee Day, we love Romantic Music Planet's creamy Busby Berkeley-esque video version of "Coffee Time" sung by the great Natalie Cole and her sultry voice recorded in 2008. Originally written in 1945 by Harry & Producer & lyricist Arthur Freed for Yolanda and the Thief, the film starred Fred Astaire and Lucille Bremer. It was Harry's hope that this fantastical fairy tale would translate to a box office hit, but in spite of Director Vincente Minnelli's artful touch and involvement of other MGM musical greats behind the camera, critics agree that the lovely music and dance sequences don't offer the same buzz as other MGM classics. We think you'll agree that from the first sip, the perfect time is Coffee Time!

Betty Boop - Mask-a-Raid - 1931

With the Labor Day holiday weekend coming to a close, we have to get back right at it tomorrow morning with a little extra help with this upbeat number written in 1926
"Where Do You Work-a, John? (Delaware-Lackawan train song)" composed by Harry with lyrics written by Mortimer Weinberg & Charley Marks and Ernie Krickett.

Recorded by several artists in the Vitagraph era, with Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians, and later by the great Louis Prima. But its feature in this 1931 Betty Boop cartoon "Mask-a-Raid" shows how wide-ranging Harry's music has been used.

Thanks to http://www.heptune.com/maskarai.html for a detailed description of this unique Betty Boop feature.

We are holding on to an endless Summer Stock that is, with the anniversary of its release 70 years ago. A robust Judy Garland favorite from the iconic blockbuster was cleverly reprised by the NY entertainer Seth Sikes, for the summer fans of Fire Island with his farm friendly take on (Howdy Neighbor) Happy Harvest.

Wishing you all a Howdy Gaybor!

Come on along and take a ride,
And look at life from the cheery side...
Clap your hands and lick your chops
Your bumper crops are on the climb.

Rudy Vallee & His Connecticut Yankees - Reminiscing

Sending a Happy Birthday to the original crooner, Rudy Vallee. Here he sings Harry Warren & Edgar Leslie,'s "Reminiscing" written in 1930. Even a non-fan couldn't help but gush about the suave singer. "Rudy Vallee is reaping the harvest of a seed that is seldom sown this day and age: LOVE. The good-looking little son-of-a-gun really and honestly LOVES his audience and his art. He LOVES to please listeners—LOVES it more than he does his name in the big lights, his mug in the papers." We are thrilled to have over 18 songs recorded by Rudy, including "I Only Have Eyes for You", "Nagasaki", "Sweet Music", and "Would You Like To Take a Walk?".

I long to hear the blue bird's love song at my door
Instead I hear the raven calling never more
Smiles are missing and kiss be true,
My reminiscing of you

Annie Ross & Gerry Mulligan - This is always (alternate version)

We celebrate the life of the truly original "vocalese" jazz singer Annie Ross, who was born July 25, 1930, in Surrey, England. The daughter of Scottish vaudevillians who sent her to Los Angeles when she was 4, she returned to Europe to begin her singing career in earnest, working with such musicians as James Moody, Kenny Clarke and Coleman Hawkins. She settled in New York in the '50s and performed with members of the Modern Jazz Quartet. In 1953, she toured Europe with Lionel Hampton and his band. Recording "This Is Always" in 1957, by Harry and Mack Gordon, this rendition with the Gerry Mulligan Quartet is Ross at her best. In 1996, Ross created one of the most memorable versions of "Coffee Time" by Harry and Arthur Freed.

We are grateful that her recordings and memory lives on.

Today is National Provider Appreciation Day where we celebrate those that look after the young ones and make sure the next generation is fully equipped to take over all the responsibilities of the world. In the spirit of honoring those that provide, Harry's 1937 composition, "Remember Me?" is a tune in which a father asks, "Do you recall a cottage small upon the hill, where every day I had to pay another bill? And if I'm not mistaken, dear, I pay 'em still. Remember Me?" Well to answer Harry and the father, yes we remember and appreciate all those who pay the rent and put food on the table.

We honor the spectacular talent of Teresa Brewer, a true American pop singer that effortlessly sang in numerous genres, country, jazz, R&B, and pretty much every other style to create her unique sound. She recorded nearly 600 songs throughout her career and one of our favorites is her 1993 tribute album "American Music Box Volume 2: The Songs of Harry Warren" where she interpreted ten Harry Warren hits from every point of his career. If you click the link below and order a CD you too will enjoy classics like "The More I See You", "Forty Second Street", "I'll String Along With You" and many many more.

On this day in 1913 Carmen Cavallaro, the "Poet of Piano" was born in New York City and displayed an amazing gift for music at the age of three, picking up tunes on a toy piano and playing them for his family. Carmen matured into a master pianist and paid homage to another master pianist, Harry Warren, in the late fifties with his interpretations of "An Affair To Remember" and "You're My Everything".

Today we wish a very special birthday to Alice Faye, the movie star that brought Harry's "You'll Never Know" to life in the 1943 film @Hello, Frisco, Hello, winning the Oscar that same year for Best Original Song. Ms. Faye ultimately starred in four classic films featuring soundtracks composed by Harry Warren, including comedies co-starring Carmen Miranda like "That Night In Rio" and "Week-End In Havana". Faye's voice has worked so well with Harry's melodies (19 of them in fact!), like a match made in heaven. Happy birthday Alice from Harry Warren Entertainment. http://ow.ly/MyCqO

The Barkleys of Broadway

Reunions sure are special aren't they? There is nothing more heartwarming than seeing a familiar face -- and on this day in 1949 MGM Studios released The Barkleys of Broadway a film that brought duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers together after ten years apart. The very same film also reunited songwriting team Harry Warren and Ira Gershwin to compose the soundtrack which featured songs like "Swing Trot", "You'd be Hard To Replace". and "Shoes With Wings On". Not since 1930's "Cheerful Little Earful", written for the musical revue "Sweet and Low" had the two titans of music collaborated to produce tunes. Watch this classic today and witness the magic of these two legendary duos.

The venerable First Lady of Radio, Kate Smith, was born on this day in 1907. Ms. Smith achieved fame in 1930 when she was discovered by Columbia Records vice president, Ted Collins. He immediately became her manager and helped her become the official contralto of radio and later television. She interpreted six Harry Warren gems across her career including, "Clementine (from New Orleans)", "I've Got A Gal In Kalamazoo", "One Sweet Letter From You", and the Oscar-winning "On The Atchinson, Topeka, And The Santa Fe".

This bespectacled wonder wowed jazz nightclubs in New York and Paris though out the 50s and later 60s. Dearie has recorded three Harry Warren cuts, including the ever-popular "There Will Never Be Another You" and a couple of lesser-known tracks, "Swing Trot" and "You'd Be Hard To Replace". Take a listen to how she tickles the black and white.

On this day in 1979, Stevie Wonder gave a surprise performance at a Duke Ellington tribute concert held at UCLA's Royce Hall. Stevie paid homage to the legendary Duke while cementing himself as a legend in the making. In addition to their incomparable contributions to music, both Ellington and Wonder interpreted Harry Warren compositions. Ellington recorded Harry songs throughout the 30s and 40s and just ten years prior to this concert Stevie recorded his very own version of "At Last" for his 1969 album My Cherie Amour. We truly wished we could have been in attendance to witness such an amazing display of talent. http://ow.ly/Mc66p

Babs performed "I Found A Million Dollar Baby" in her 1975 film Funny Lady about meeting the famous writer Billy Rose, who co-wrote the song with Harry in 1931. Mr. Griffin recorded a lengthy jazz version of "There Will Never Be Another You" for his 1960 album, "Johnny Griffin's Studio Jazz Party". Happy birthday to Ms. Streisand and Johnny Griffin!

English jazz musician, bandleader, and trombonist, Chris Barber, turns 85 today and we'd like to wish him a happy birthday! Barber's 1956 collection "Chris Barber Plays…" was a four volume set that featured covers of the most notable jazz songs of his era.

Doris Day interprets favorites like "Love Finds A Way", "Someone Like You", "You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby", and "Nagasaki". Click the link to purchase this classic on DVD.
